DE NOVO – A Play by Houses on the Moon

November 16 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

$10 – $20

Gripping theatre at Charter Oak! November 16th, we present DE NOVO, performed by Houses on the Moon Theater Company.

On the streets of Guatemala City, gang members were Edgar’s only family…but he dreamed of a different future.
To leave the gang was a death sentence. Coming to the USA was his last hope.

This documentary play, crafted entirely from immigration court transcripts, interviews and letters tells the gripping true story of fourteen year old Edgar Chocoy and his legal struggle to be allowed to stay in the United States.
DE NOVO provides a rare glimpse into the lives of the many thousands of children who make the harrowing journey across the border and through the U.S. immigration system each year.

“Moving. Dramatically potent. It held me in its grip. Solomon achieves one of the great strengths of documentary theater: its capacity to shake what we know or believe to be true.” – Village Voice
